DEATH PENALTY IS BIG GOVERNMENT AT ITS WORST POLICYMAKERS TO DISCUSS AT SPN ANNUAL MEETING September 17, 2014 – Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty (CCATDP), a national network of conservatives and libertarians questioning the alignment of capital punishment with their principles, will be exhibiting at the upcoming State Policy Network 22nd Annual Meeting (September 23-26) in Denver. The SPN Annual Meeting comes following a succession of innocent men being released from America’s death rows, as well as CCATDP’s speaking tour of Patriot and GOP groups across the Florida Panhandle. Every day conservatives are learning more about the failures of the system. “Conservatives in every part of the country and of all stripes – from Tea Party activists to Republican millennials with GOP stalwarts in between – have repeatedly demonstrated an interest in reexamining the death penalty system,” said Marc Hyden, CCATDP’s national coordinator who will be attending the SPN Annual Meeting. This month in North Carolina a man was released after enduring 31 years on death row for a murder he did not commit. He becomes the 146th person facing a death sentence in the United States to be set free because the government got it wrong. The booth for Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty will be located in the SPN exhibit area at Sheraton Denver Downtown About Us Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty is a network of political and social conservatives who question the alignment of capital punishment with conservative principles and values.
